Allomancy

-

- have a layer of metal under the pavements, roofs and walls in your house. float in your house instead of walking.

Copper Piping covers this well enough.

Create a generator powered by your steelpushing. Use it to keep drinks cold.

Peddle a bicycle with steel pushes/Pulls.

- Lash other people to their clothes so they can't undress.

This one's my favourite so far, I was just about to say the same thing but with shoes. Upvote for Lightflame! (Also, try to just edit your post, instead of double posting if you can.)

Lash pants to the ground... Wait, that could win fights, hard to fight with your pants around your ankles.

There's some amusing but wrong ways to lash Clothing.

New theory!

Hoid is travelling through time and meddling with shardworlds, and even using limited prescience to find the best car insurance In the universe!

I like it!

Drawing the Aon for nothing.

Use tin to see through the paper bag on your head - very useful.

Introducing the Huuuuuman Hammer!: *Steel pushes a nail into a piece of wood...*

I think I mentioned this in another thread somewhere already :huh:

Oooh, also, water-skiing would be great fun, just pull yourself along with iron pulling (assuming we were in a world with speedboats and allomancy :S)

Ooh! I know. Sacrifice a Dakhor monk to get transported a block away.

I'd feel better about this one if Dilaf hadn't once done exactly that just to show that he could.

I'm not really in physics and stuff but would you be able to walk on water while storing weight?

Well the short answer is no. Depending on exactly how much weight you "lost" while you were storing it, you might be able to float but any kind of walking motion would be pretty difficult. I think it'd be impossible to balance with the water moving around below you. It'd probably be a bit like trying to walk on jelly (if that could hold your weight), only so much worse.
